Pfeiffer s Classic Inventories, Questionnaires, and Surveys for Training and Development is divided into three sections:
Beliefs and Values includes assessments that help managers examine and evaluate the underlying views and attitudes that shape their behavior and their approach to the leadership role. This section contains self–scoring questionnaires that will shed light on a manger s personal values and beliefs.
Present Performance offers instruments that allow individuals to assess their own current performance, as well as instruments that reveal what that performance looks like to others. This section s assessments provide information useful in a variety of training and development applications.
Managing the Organization contains surveys and instruments that examine the climate factors that influence or dictate the behavior of every manager in the organization, regardless of what any particular training program may encourage them to do.
Trainers and human resources professionals will find that the assessments in this volume create a complete toolbox that can enrich, personalize, and deepen training, development, and intervention designs.
